(WXYZ) — Colder than average weather is hitting metro Detroit as May continues, but snow could also hit the area.
7 First Alert Meteorologist Kevin Jeanes said there are signs of potential snowfall on Friday.
He said there's a chance that it shifts east, but even if timing changes, it could mean rain instead of snow on Friday afternoon.
Metro Detroit has only had measurable snow in May in 8 of the 146 years of records.
